Ok, so by this point and time you should know that the Marvel Comics films rights are divided up between three studios. Marvel Studios has the majority, Sony owns Spider-Man and his characters, and Fox has the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Because of that, certain characters can’t be used by other studios. There are some loopholes though, and one of them may be the Skrulls. The shapeshifting aliens were already confirmed for Captain Marvel, but now, rumors are saying that X-Men: Dark Phoenix could have them too.
This comes from Manabyte, who says a source that’s seen the film confirms that the Skrulls are going to be in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. This was hinted at before, as Jessica Chastain (who is playing one of the villains in the film) was described as an ” otherworldly shapeshifter”, which made many think of Skrulls. If this is true, the dynamic of the film has just changed dramatically.
Now, it remains to be seen how impactful the Skrulls could be to the Dark Phoenix storyline, those who remember X-Men: The Last Stand will note that the film was weighed down by too many storylines, including the first attempt at the Dark Phoenix storyline as well as “The Cure” storyline. Could this film be going down the same path?
Well, that same source said the film was good, we’ll just have to see how it goes.
